Lollipop (BIGBANG & 2NE1)
"Lollipop" is the collaboration single by YG Entertainment groups BIGBANG and 2NE1. The song was used to promote LG Electronics Cyon cellphone (Lollipop, model name: LG-SV800, KH8000, LH8000). A CF was released on the CYON website on March 28th, and it started airing on TV on April. The music video was released on April 3, on the CYON website. A "re-edit version" of the music video was also released some days later.
On April 6, the song took Super Junior's "Sorry, Sorry" and Davichi's "8282" off the #1 position on MelOn (the biggest Korean online chart). The song also top charts on Dosirak, Bugs, Mnet and Cyworld. Although it kept raising to the #1 position, the song wasn't promoted in radio or TV-music programs. YG Entertainment spoke up about it: "Since BIGBANG has stopped all their official schedule, it is impossible that they will perform the song on stage, the results are beyond our expectations."
The song won 2nd place at Music Bank's chart on April 10th, beating Super Junior's "Sorry, Sorry" and just behind Son Dam Bi's "Neol Ireun Apeumeh Jjijeojin Kaseumeh". The song was still topping charts and was expected to appear also on Music Bank's chart on April 19th 2009, but due to it being a commercial song it could only be featured on Music Bank's chart for a limited amount of time. The only reason why the song could participate on Music Bank's chart the first time, was that it was #1 on several online music charts. The song also was #1 at MNet's real time chart for four consecutive weeks.
A second version of the CF was released on August 18.
